Planning for the future

Many steps are involved in creating the annual budget for our university. The budget includes university-funded financial aid, faculty, staff and student salaries, services and purchases (including study away expenses), equipment and maintenance (including capital improvements).

The Budget Planning Calendar provides a timeline and sets milestones for internal planning. Each May, following the internal planning process, the PLU Board of Regents adopts the university's annual operating budget.
